The younger actor has not appeared on screen with the Bollywood legend yet.
He told IANS: "I don't think anybody can be Salman Khan. And I don't think anybody should try and be like him. There is only one Salman Khan and I am sure he is not trying to be like someone else.
"I am a huge fan of him and enjoy his work. I am not trying to be someone else and I am trying to create an identity for myself."
Khan has acted in over 80 films since making his debut in a minor role in 1988's Biwi Ho To Aisi.
He has had a massive run of success with recent hits Dabanng, Ready and Bodyguard, which are all currently in the 20 biggest-grossing films of all time.
Kapoor will next be seen starring opposite his old flame Priyanka Chopra in the period romance Teri Meri Kahaani.
He was recently forced to deny that there was on-set tension between him and the Dostana actress.
In March, he admitted that he can relate to the title of the comedy film The Dirty Bollywood Bachelor.
